The Lineage of Learning

I bow deeply to these teachers and to their teachers before them. They are the wise ones who have poured these practices into me so that I may pour them back out to you. Deep and eternal gratitude and blessings to the following who have started me out and continue to shed their light on my way:


Karin Nilsen

Cora Wen

Judith Hanson Lasater

Amy Matthews

Mary Paffard

Susi Amendola

Other yoga teachers I have studied with through workshops are: Laurie Blakeney, George Purvis, Rolf Gates, Cintra Brown, Tias Little, Fran Ubertini, Dale Hails, Nischala Joy Devi, Rolf Sovik, Baxter Bell, Doug Keller, and Leslie Howard. Through conferences, I have taken classes with: Patricia Walden, Julie Gudmestad, Barbara Benagh, Rodney Yee, Gary Kraftsow, Seane Corn, Aadil Palkhivala, Richard Freeman, Mary Taylor, Dr. Robert Svoboda, Cyndi Lee, Rod Stryker, Angela Farmer and Victor Van Kooten, and Timothy McCall, M.D. Through telecourses and webinars: Loren Fishman, M.D., Ellen Saltonstall and others.

Volunteer Teachers at the Omaha Tai Chi Association:
Louis Dorland and Steve Krout

Other tai chi teachers I have studied with through workshops are: Suman Barkhas, Nicholas Schnell, Sarah Brandt, and Yun Xiang Tseng (Master Chen).

These practices do not come magically to us; even though, I believe we all already know them essentially. It is through our connection to each other that we truly learn about each other and ourselves. All these teachers have enriched me, my life, my practice of yoga and tai chi, and my teaching. Thank you! Without you, I may have been lost a lot longer than I was.
